Re: What Have You Just Ordered or Received?

Bought The Raid 2 and Lady Vengeance on HK BR today. Lady Vengeance should be the full colour version I believe, as opposed to the fade to B&W UK version.

Why doesn't the main page show the time and date of the last post that's been made inside that section? Now you have to go into each section to check if anything new has been posted. Which is retarded. "But Yi, why didn't you post this in Feedback, instead of here in Anything Goes"? Becaus...

Re: Asian Movies in HD!

Thanks, yeah if the original sound is mono, I want mono. Don't want no dumb remixes with added crap. Nice to see Born Wild on the positive list.

Re: The Neon Demon (Nicolas Winding Refn, 2016)

I liked Drive.

Saw Only God Forgives on TV once, but didn't really care for it that much. Just a bit too dark for my liking. Not even sure if I bothered finished watching it.

Re: I've just got banned from KFC!

Combination of factors, I guess; HK-cinema going down the drain, and not everyone found the same kind of love for Korean and Japanese cinema, which means there would simply be less to discuss. IMHO, I also feel the forum got too big when it comes to sub-sectors, so before we basically just had the '...

Re: Ip Man 3 (2015)

They've been playing lots of footage of Ip Man 3 in local stores here, and the fights seem OK. I always had my doubts about the plot, and it seems it's somewhere between the pretty damn good Ip Man, and the ridiculously bad Ip Man 2. Not sure if they'll butcher the western release or not, though. I ...

I've been in Hong Kong these last few weeks (still am, actually), and I've noticed there are now quite a few older classics available on BluRay, but not sure if they're just crappy upscales, or proper 1080p transfers. Is there a list somewhere that mentions the best releases? Also, The Raid 2 is onl...

Re: What general film/series have you just seen.. marks out

Midnight Run (1988-USA) *** Sharp mismatched-buddy vehicle made way back when putting the words 'DeNiro' and 'comedy' in the same sentence wasn't a threat. I LOVE Midnight Run. Such classic characters and lines, and it has a nice pace. Just a fun road movie. Spectre: 4/5 Felt like more of a spy thr...

Re: What asian film/series have you just seen.. marks out of

Why was Jackie angry with Sammo about OUATIC&W? Because he felt it was HIS idea to mix martial arts and a western? Was he afraid Jet could become a major international star because of this movie? I really wish they hadn't fallen out. They were there together on their rise to the top in Hong Kong...

I hate to admit this... but... Mark was right.

I absolutely hated Quantum of Solace when it came out, and earlier attempts to give it a 2nd chance ended with more frustration about the terrible editing in the action-scenes. However, last night it was on TV, and I hadn't masturbated for a while so I needed Daniel Craig for that, so I ended up wat...

Re: Creed

Creed looks very good to me, even from the first trailer. I also feel having Rocky only there in a secondary role was the right way to go. It's called Creed, it's about the new kid, and this origin-story looks like it could be as strong as the first Rocky. If you're expecting a Rocky movie, I'm sure...

Re: Birth Of The Dragon-Bruce Lee Biopic

From what I've read and heard about that fight in numerous books and interviews, it really wasn't all that interesting a fight. Basically it had both fighters pretty much losing composure, with Bruce ending up chasing after Wong while punching him in the back of the head. It's main importance comes ...

I really wish Campbell would have done the last 3 Bond movies. I think all 3 of them would have been better with him at the helm. Not really interested in seeing Brosnan/Chan. Personally never been a fan of Brosnan, and Jackie lost his mojo centuries ago. Unless they go really serious and hardcore a...

Re: Ip Man 3 (2015)

With 3D you will often find them sacrificing choreography in order to just kick/punch/throw straight into the camera, and that rarely results in a nice flowing fight TBH. Apart from the 3D though, I'm just fucking disappointed they'll be going even MORE fictional with Ip Man than they already did. I...

I only watched the HK cut I believe, but I enjoyed it as well, although Christy Chung is terrible as always. It's not a very good movie, but it's entertaining in it's own way. Not as good as My Father is a Hero, or Hitman, or some of Jet's other modern stuff... but it's just Jet doing the straight-...
